IPL 2020: Latest Orange and Purple Cap holders after SRH vs RCB – Eliminator

SRH will face Delhi Capitals in the Qualifier 2 after outclassing RCB.

Eliminator of the Indian Premier League (IPL)2020 witnessed action between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Both the teams were supposed to pour in their heart in this match of prime importance, but it was Sunrisers who saw their sun rising. SRH won the match by six wickets to set the date with Delhi next. Batting first, RCB posted an underwhelming score of 131 runs on the board, where a half-century by AB de Villiers (56 off 43) became the backbone of their batting set up.

Brief innings by consistent youngster Devdutt Padikkal (32 off 30) boosted the team’s performance a bit. Rashid Khan came with the best economy but had to remain wicketless in a rare instance. Jason Holder turned phenomenal and picked three wickets for the team.

Holder-Williamson duo took SRH home

Chasing an ordinary target, the opening order failed for Hyderabad, but it was Kane Williamson and all-rounder Jason Holder who shouldered all the responsibilities for SRH. Williamson smashed a prolific half-century (50 off 44) to take the team home. Holder supported him well by adding a quickfire of 24 off 20. Kane Williamson was named as the player of the match as he took SRH over the line by steadying the pace of the team’s chase. Adam Zampa leaked only 12 runs in four over to maintain a brilliant economy. Mohammed Siraj picked two wickets for the team.
